Info   Distances of 50, 70 and 100 miles will be fully signed with accompanying maps. GPX files for your GPS available for download from the website,

The routes will take place in quiet areas of scenic Lincolnshire, Rutland and Leicestershire on some of the best cycle-friendly roads in the country. If you think the area is flat, think again! Choose the 70 miler (3133ft of climb) for a good workout or, if you couldn't afford to go to the Alps this year, pick the 100 miler which gives you 4987ft of climb. Finally, for an equally lovely route with less effort, the 50 miler gives you a gentle 1911ft of climb.

Drinks and food stations like leisurely stop-offs. will be provided in strategic places with nearby cyclist-friendly cafes en route indicated on the maps and in the ride instructions for those who like leisurely stop offs.
